hello and happy may! isn't it great? i can't wait for that end of school feeling and short sleeves.

over the weekend, i did a little reading in a rather famous book, cooked for a big shindig at camp (made my first strawberry rhubarb pie), and met my new niece! what a cutie. meanwhile, grant continued work on the window trim. my kitchen is looking more and more put-together as projects get finished. i say it's looking more martha stewart. and it's very exciting.

so i've got something extra short and sweet today. we made these candied pretzels to go on top of a chocolate pecan tart for the dinner at camp. they usually belong to a recipe for pineapple pretzel salad, (oh yumm.) but i also like to eat them outside of salad. on tarts, or by the handful. but most of all, with chocolate chips.

Candied Pretzels 
(one of life's little luxuries)

1 cup pretzels, crushed
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 chopped pecans, optional

1. combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and spread onto a baking sheet.
2. bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. break apart and enjoy.

sweet and salty = yummy

I watched an entire show on "Good Eats" about sugar and salt and why our taste buds love it.

Thanks for this! I have made two batches of these delicious little snacks already this weekend. We have all decided these can replace the popcorn for movie night! Love it! And for Mothers Day we are dipping them in chocolate. All I can say is Heavenly!
